Against the background of war-town Belfast, a widow and widower in their 60s begin an unlikely romance which crosses the line between their Catholic and Protestant backgrounds. Reid's humane, insightful play tells the topical yet timeless story of their efforts to lift their affection above age, sectarianism, and the suspicious disapproval of their respective grown children. The Boston premiere of a funny, compassionate new play by one of Ireland's most gifted playwrights.
